WOODBRIDGE TWP, NJ- Middlesex County Acting Prosecutor Christie L. Bevacqua announced today that a man from Randolph was sentenced to probation, community service, and ordered to pay restitution for the fake slip and fall he orchestrated in 2018.
Alexander Goldinsky, 58, of Randolph, NJ, was sentenced on November 4, 2019, by Superior Court Judge Joseph A. Paone to 2 years of probation and 14 hours of community service. In addition, the defendant paid restitution in the amount of $563.48 to an insurance company at the time of sentencing.
The sentence was imposed after Goldinsky pleaded guilty on August 16, 2019, in accordance with a plea agreement reached with Middlesex County Assistant Prosecutor Christine D’Elia, to third degree insurance fraud, admitting he filed a false insurance claim for injuries he said he sustained at a business located in Woodbridge Township.
At the time of the crime, Goldinsky was an independent contractor operating under the company name All Gold Industries and was subcontracted to perform work at a company in Woodbridge.
Goldinsky was arrested and charged as a result of an investigation by Detective Sean Sullivan of the Middlesex County Prosecutor’s Office which revealed that the defendant purposely threw ice on the floor in the cafeteria at his workplace, placed himself on the ground, and waited until he was discovered. Thereafter, he sought medical attention claiming a head injury, and he caused false claims to be submitted to the insurance company.
